What people are saying about Selangor

A great active day out of the city. The long trip and early morning start is absolutely fine with the comfortable bus (3 big seats per row). I had an extra service for special pick-up - thanks team for organizing. The jungle tour was rather a hike - be prepared for some steps to climb to enjoy the views. Interesting stop with some activities at the tribal village to add the local culture flavour. Absolute highlight was the boat trips - fun and refreshing, soaked to the bone. The guides were really friendly and supportive.

Really enjoyed this tour. Luckily it had stopped raining by the time we reached the monkeys. Please remember if you intend to feed the monkeys wear dark clothes because you will get dirt all over you. The meal was plentiful and we met some nice people. We did get to see the fireflies which was awesome. The guide on this tour was also great.

It's definitely very good for the time you have. You have to be aware that you will be in the car longer than you are in the national park. The boat tour at the end, where you really get completely wet, was also fun!

Great guide great trip enjoyed the trip to the pewter factory. Just wished we'd known that it was an Indian festival when we visited the Batu caves as there were too many people there so we didn't go inside the caves .

Very well organised, comfortable bus and amazing tour guide Mc!
